The kindness of God (Bar 2:27-2:28)

“Yet you have dealt

With us!

O Lord!

Our God!

In all your kindness!

In all your great compassion!

You spoke

By your servant Moses

On the day

When you commanded him

To write

Your law

In the presence

Of the people

Of Israel.”

Baruch pointed out that God was kind and compassionate. God had spoken with Moses when he gave the commandments to his people. Baruch seemed to imply that Moses wrote the commandments in the presence of all the people with a vague reference to Leviticus, chapter 26, and Deuteronomy, chapters 27-28.
